Ocean Decade Expeditions 2560 1707 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

SOI Foundation – Canada

Ocean Decade Expeditions enables participants to explore what is needed to successfully create and deliver community-based protected area management plans. 

In order to take concrete action toward the protection, conservation and management of Canada’s marine environment and to build demonstrable outcomes for Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and Other Effective area-based Conservation Measures (OECMs), including Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs), SOI Foundation proposes to work with a diverse array of regional partners to deliver a multi-year program with national reach centered around unique Ocean Decade Expeditions.

During the expeditions participants will take part in facilitated workshops, seminars and dialogues, in which they will collectively explore what is needed to successfully create and deliver community-based protected area management plans for the selected MPAs and OECMs. The Ocean Decade Expeditions will build on SOI’s decades of experience in ship-based experiential learning, the regional knowledge and networks SOI developed during Canada C3 and on the lessons learned during past Ocean Conservation Expeditions.
